One of Buffalo's newer traditions is coming back this spring as the Buffalo Porchfest, presented by the Elmwood Village Association, has announced its return on May 7.
Since debuting in the fall of 2013, the biannual festival has given village residents, spanning from Allentown to the West Side to nearly SUNY at Buffalo State, an opportunity to roam the neighborhood and catch live music upon nearly every turn. Past installments of Porchfest have featured performances from some of the city's best acts including Bryan Johnson & Family, Pine Fever, the Tins, Radarada, Lesionread and Difficult Night.
If you are in a band and wish to play the festival, have a porch and want to host a band or are just looking to lend a hand, visit the festival's website to sign up until April 11.
For those keeping score, the spring installment of Porchfest has traditionally been the sunny version in comparison to the festival's generally cold, rainy and rather gloomy October counterpart, so if history repeats itself, next month should be prime for foot traffic.
The free Buffalo Porchfest will be held from 1 to 6 p.m. May 7 throughout the Elmwood Village. Visit buffaloporchfest.org
